was a statistical tie between al gore and george w. bush, the country does move on and we head to the next election. >> i always say to people, look, mitt romney didn't come all that close to winning. he didn't come as close as i thought he might. one quick other follow-up on this, the thing i've been struck by, does mitt romney retain a constituency within the repub c republican party? he was the nominee. he got the votes. but it doesn't seem like he's having much influence. he's not in office right now so is not doing -- i don't see him returning to an office. he's not going to run for president again. does he kind of just shuffle off to the side? >> it really seems that way. one of the more amazing things is the imprint he had on the republican party, its ideas, seem so little right now particularly just weeks after the presidential election. you can make the argument even john mccain who lost decisively in 2008, all the republicans and the tea party people who are demanding an end to earmarks, there was john mccain, and very little -- one of the calls mitt romney ended up having that republica

to win by a bigger margin than george w. bush won in 2004. it may be the second biggest margin that a democrat has won for re-election in the last 100 years. with the so-called fiscal cliff looming mr. obama sends chief negotiator treasury secretary tim gheiter for individual meetings with each member of the conditioningal leadership which includes speaker john boehner, perhaps the most important player here. the meetings mark the beginning of the real negotiations. that doesn't mean the posturing stage is behind us. one capitol hill veteran, former fdic, sheila bair, a long-time staffer by the way who butted heads with geithner in the past, made this interesting observation to david gregory about tim geithner saying he's not the right guy for the white house to be sending in for these talks. >> do you think tim geithner, secretary geithner is the right person to lead the negotiations for the administration sf. >> i don't know. i don't think this is tim's strong suit. i think tim was given the job of treasury secretary because he understood the banking system. he's not a budget

in a while. former president george w. bush. he use add rare appears to give his party some advice on something he has a lot of credibility on, immigration. >> they invigorate our soul. as we debate the proper course of action relating to immigration i hope we do so with a benevolent spirit. >> quite the day yesterday. >> this battle for the soul is worth going back reading those speeches from bush to ryan to rubio. >> all right. as we move on, minority report democrats trying to force a vote on extending tax cuts. some republicans about ready to break ranks. what it really takes to make a deal before time runs out. first a look ahead to the president's schedule. wondering why do the negotiations look like nothing in the way ceos do negotiations. having you ship my gifts couldn't be easier. well, having a ton of locations doesn't hurt. and a santa to boot!

to be this way. 1992 when bill clinton unseated george h.w. bush, these same counties, won 60% with the whole foods market. 40% with cracker barrel. so that was a 20-point gap. it's a 48-point gap now. >> there are some older votes, maybe the old fdr coalition that have shifted to the republican party. the democratic coalition of younger voters, hispanics, african-american, is just growing in size. >> if you had to pick a couple of counties that would epitomize that shift, you look at ohio and the white working class counties along the ohio river, coal country, belmont county, ohio, gave john kerry 52% of the vote in 2004. obama only won 44.7% this time around. if you had to look at a county that captures where democrats are doing better and better, it's probably in your home state, chuck, osceola, florida. outside of orlando, kissimmee, st. cloud, huge growing puerto rican population. consider that john kerry only won 47% of the vote there in 2004. guess where obama was this year? 61.7%. >> i challenge anybody to find another county with that dramatic of an uptick, that size of a county. spe
